Where We Work

Latin America

The world’s most biodiverse region is at a turning point.

With 40 percent of the world’s species, more than a quarter of the Earth’s forests and the second largest reef on the planet, Latin America is a beacon of hope for a planet facing a changing climate and growing demands for food, water and energy.

Your Chance to Give Back

From Mexico’s Baja California in the north to Argentina’s Patagonia in the southern tip, The Nature Conservancy has worked in Latin America for more than 40 years to protect its lands, waters and oceans.
